asked the Minister of Agriculture how many small holdings of between 30 and 40 acres and how many of between 40 and 50 acres have been provided by local authorities since the War?

The information asked for by the hon. Member is not in my possession, and it would entail a very great amount of work to obtain it. I may say, however, that of the 16,740 holdings created under the Land Settlement Scheme, between 18th December, 1918, and 31st March, 1926, 5,470 were equipped with a house and buildings, and the majority of these were probably not less than 30 acres.
